A viral video of a golden retriever trying to steal food from his owner’s counter has gone viral. The footage, captured by his owner and shared on Twitter, garnered over 6.5 million views after other users saw the dog’s priceless expression. Although most pet owners see their dogs stealing food from time to time, for some it’s a rare occurrence.
In the video, the dog was able to get his mouth around one of the food containers. However, when he realized his owner was in the room, he slowly dropped the tub and took off running into another room. Dogs are really more than just pets; they’re part of the family.
They are usually loyal, loving, and playful. But they are also known to be quirky, sensitive, and sneaky. It’s a well-deserved reputation, as many dogs try to steal food from their owners.
It might annoy people when pets steal food from their owners, but most people find it pretty funny. The urge to take food from the counter or table is common for dogs. Dogs have a much stronger sense of smell than people do, and they can enjoy the scent of their favorite food for an hour before it’s served.
It’s no wonder that when your dog catches a whiff of your favorite dish on the stove or sees you snacking on something delicious in front of the TV, he wants a taste too. They typically steal food because they think it’s their reward for doing something good. Most of the time, pet owners don’t even mind that their dogs do this.
However, there are a lot of people who will physically punish their dogs for stealing food from them. This is wrong. It’s important to understand why dogs steal food and how to properly train your dog not to do it anymore.
So if you want to stop them from doing this, then you’ll need to properly train your pet.
